Qt IDE -Clicking on Tabs like Open Project etc. hangs and crashes the IDE
I am new to Qt and trying to install in on my Windows 7 system. I tried the following installers and software:
Qt 5.6.2 for Windows 64-bit (VS 2015, 839 MB)
Qt 5.6.2 for Windows 32-bit (MinGW 4.9.2, 1.0 GB)
Qt 5.6.2 for Windows 32-bit (VS 2013, 814 MB)
All the software were successfully installed but when I try to select File->Open Project and other similar tabs then the GUI hangs and later on crashes. If anyone has encountered such problems during installation or if someone have any idea what I am doing wrong, please help me. Its been 3 days now, I am doing this stuff of installing and uninstalling different versions of the software. Really need help on this.
Thanks & Best Regards
Hi and welcome to devnet,
Does Qt Creator start or not at all ?
One thing you can try is to start if from the command line with
The Qt creater starts perfectly. But if I try to clieck on the tabs then it hangs.
The "command line with -noload Welcome" option works but is there a permanent solution to end this bug?
@GuptaR Yes: disable the Welcome plug-in in "Help/About plugins...".
Just a note: its not really a bug as such.
The Welcome is made with QML which requires good opengl support.
So sometimes it can be fixed by upgrading the gfx card driver.
@mrjj Hello, I tried to update my graphic card. Got to know it was already to the latest update. Therefore the IDE hangs if I select welcome option in Help->plugins.
If there is another alternative, please let me know.
